the multitudes

When everybody begins posting and the river rages rapidly it will be a booger to find a post in the stream list!

Is a booger in the stream like a needle in a haystack ? (;-)

Winnie says
Twood be nice to find others POST of interest and its hard to find the tags when there isn't a system to the names that they are posted under.

Winnie says
If only we all had the time to sort through thousands of entries....Whatcha think?

This is so fucking true it almost makes me cry ! .... one thing that helps, of course is to tag your items with care and forethought. But it raises even a bigger point that i have been trying to get a good solution for. The way we are interacting now using the common stream to pay attention to items of interest will not be possible when we get even 10 active posters here .. so that all the action will move to tagrooms or to groups or to title rooms ... hopefully that will work our ... but will not be sure till we have enough flow to see how it affects dialogue.

Winnie says
ahhhh YES...Mark only its a lot "stickier subject"

Seth says

... ahh but there is ... it is called language ... mostly the English language ... try it , it works well ! ... most of your troubles with it may be that you have not as of yet really embrased tagging ...

Winnie says
Would catigories be a option ......or something maby to narrow the search

Winnie says
if the blog narrows to people mostly talking in groups it will digress into another chat room with different features

Winnie says
The Koolest thing about your FastBlogIt is that it IS a large River

Seth says
for example, this item is mis tagged "web design" ... well it really has very little to do with web design ... with usually most people use to refer to the grahics + HTML + CSS of building a web site. check out the tagroom webdesign ... note how i went behind you and tagges some item that you tagged with "web design" with the prolly more common term "webdesign" but both of those tags will function well ... but they really do not tag your major question in this item.

a tag is a catagory, a catagory is a tag ... same concept

Thanks .. i needed that. I'm hoping that it is even a bigger river than we have imagined .

Winnie says
Boy will you get tired of this GRUNT job of millions of post....Seth says(note how i went behind you and tagges some item that you tagged)

Winnie says
One other thing...(and I call all of this web design because things need to be redesigned to make it a mor functional web design) is that the whole program is large and we have to scroll of the screen to see and read the items.

Seth says

Nope .. i will tag as many items as i see go by and that i care enough about that i want to find them in a room. I'm not gonna take on the impossible task of keeping items tagged right. People will learn to tag things or they will loose them ... or nobody who might be intereste in them will find them ... go over to Flicky and find things via the tags ... this tagging system works ... its not just something that i came up with .. no it is a strategy that has emerged on the web in the last couple of years that some of us have just groked works outrageously well.

Winnie says
See I would think it useful to scroll the List separately... when it is growing fast especially will there be a need to scroll separately.

Mark de LA says
tags are bookmarks in the stream - like an index in the back of a book. everything else is a sticky cyber booger.

Winnie says
Yes I was not expecting you to really do that ...just a humor way to point towards the original thot in this post

Seth says

you are probably right ... mark also wants something like that ... but i dont see him digging into the programming of it

.... errr ... hmmm ... how are these sticky booger thingies spose to work ??

Mark de LA says
if you get one on the end of your finger you are supposed to flick it & see where it sticks

Winnie says
